Ok, so even with Clear Type off, a color picker like the Instant Color Picker was not able to pick the exact color of the font in the status bar. mostl I get 110,110,x, but when searching in Sample Skin, that only points me to…
Maybe I am misunderstanding what you are doing, but the idea is that you pick the colour of the element using the Sample Skin.
If we are talking about the same statusbar text (player panel positioned at the bottom, the statusbar right above it) you should get 18,151,133
That matches "Panel.StatusBarInPanel.Default" in the Sample Skin xml.
So then you add that element to your piggy-back skin and change the colours to your liking.
PS, colour-picking pro tip: you can get the right colour picked with leaving cleartype on, if you for example pick the middle part of an horizontal part of e.g. the number 4.
